Endometriosis 101: For the Significant Other

"A comprehensive guide to understanding endometriosis and adenomyosis and how you can provide support, understanding and knowledge for your loved one." This book is not for professors, doctors, or medical students (though they should read it too). It is for that huge group of significant others, who, every month and sometimes every day, see their loved one (spouse, relative, friend, parent, sibling, child, or coworker) suffering, sometimes in silence, from endometriosis. Endometriosis is real, yet often not diagnosed in a timely manner (on average, there is a nine-year delay). Too often, women are told their pain is normal or they are misdiagnosed. Endometriosis 101 will help you, in an easy-to-read and comprehensible manner, to understand what your loved one is experiencing and to help her get the help she needs. This book will tell you everything you need to know about endometriosis and its sister disease adenomyosis. You will learn: How to determine the symptoms of endometriosis and adenomyosis Why these conditions are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood How endometriosis affects women in the workplace, at school, and at home What happens during the laparoscopic journey The effects of various medications on endometriosis How diet affects symptoms and recovery after surgery How endometriosis affects fertility and how to reverse its effects Why a hysterectomy is not the only solution. As the significant other, you can play a significant role in helping to end your loved one’s suffering. A pain-free life is possible if a timely diagnosis is made and proper procedures take place to eliminate endometriosis. After you read Endometriosis 101, you will be able to provide emotional support, understanding, and knowledge on how to end your loved one’s pain.
